The Formless Journey

new dawn in Terra Australis
the African violet grows in silence
ravishing the pollen universe

the heart sings
flooding my humble soul with a
deluge of love particles

homeless children tremble
like the delicate
flower of wonder
facing the alchemy of growth…
rivers of tears
on the road to utopia

i hold your hand along
the fatal shore of time, as the roots
descend into darkness

we survived
the formless journey in style
hopes and dreams
in the City of Light
an amorous land of feathered splendour

esoteric truth revealed…
i feed the hungry soul in the ‘hood
changing my life forever

Many people are homeless and don't know it. Taking care of the children, giving them a chance to survive would be a higher calling.
